Hello! My name is*****

Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

Well, i would make clear that Cataract surgery recovery time can be up to six weeks.

Many patients also experience increased light sensitivity and a small amount of fluid discharge after cataract surgery.

It is common to have such headache after this surgery.

You can take OTC Tylenol for headache.

This is completely safe.

No need to get panic, and you can take OTC Tylenol.

You should Avoid heavy lifting.

You should Wash your hands thoroughly before touching your eye area.

You should Avoid rubbing or putting pressure on your eye.

Hope this helped
